A little about me...
I am a retired NYC school teacher. Thankfully I now have the means and the time to live life to the fullest. That being said I have varied interests and enjoy having new experiences and meeting new people. I love nature and being outdoors as much as possible. I can be happy reading a great book, listening to good music, riding my bike, enjoying time with friends and family and traveling. I like to stay active and engaged. I am a strong proponent of working out and staying in shape, though not excessively so. Recently I have started taking classes at a local dance studio and find that so energizing and challenging. I have no trouble meeting anyone halfway with anything. I believe compromise is so important in a relationship. I am very happy and satisfied with my life as it is, and obviously the one thing that could make it better would be finding the right partner to share the future with.
About the one I'm looking for...
In a future partner I am looking for warmth, honesty, graciousness, and a willingness to work through problems while knowing when to compromise, and when to just let go of an issue. A lady with class (hard trait to define, but so obvious when you have it), would be something I would look for as well. I am looking for a long term relationship with someone.
I'd just like to add...
Friends and family mean the world to me. I have a granddaughter who is a little over two years old and that has opened up a whole new world; she has truly captivated me. I try to get over to spend some time with her once a week. I would like to bring someone special into my life, and would hope she would feel the same way about me...
